This historic inn, built in 1834, was so deteriorated that it was on the verge of being demolished. The Wisconsin Lead Region Historic Trust stepped in to lead a restoration project.

Prairie Spring Inn, 1834 -- After

We built a new foundation, moved the building, and replaced the missing porch and additions. We restored and repurposed the inn for use as an exhibit of local history, architectural preservation, and construction techniques.
